Canada into the Next 150 years: Re-imagining the People’s Constitution

The College of New Scholars will host a series of events to mark the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, while promoting a vision for the next 150 years. Borrowing from Canadian Parliamentary Poet Laureate George Elliott Clarke, the overarching theme for the Wave event is “Re-imagining the Constitution.” The College seeks to combine a range of perspectives, from the creative and performing arts to the scholarly, to examine how the Canadian Constitution might be re-framed to reflect the 21st century realities of our country.  The events, held in five cities, will sweep across the country like a relay race. These events will be 120 minutes long, and will be regionally focused, reflecting the challenges and unique perspectives of the different parts of the country.
